An artist slowly loses his mind as he and his two female friends scrape to pay the bills. The punk band downstairs increasingly agitates him, his art dealer is demanding that he complete his big canvas painting as promised, and he gets into fights with his girlfriends. When the dealer laughs at his canvas he snaps, and begins taking it out on the people responsible for his pain and random transients in the manner suggested by the title.Uncut Version.

Subject: No audio or video stream available with downloaded 1.1GB file...
Does the uploader know anything about this?
Many thanks. :)
However, note that in some scenes the frame is cropped very differently in the two tranfers: for example, check the scene where Dalton is on the phone at about 11:32 in this version (very very bad crop!) and 12:00 in the other one.
Subject: Directors cut maybe?
Regardless this is the best looking copy on the archive. Try the 1.1GB .avi, it looks great, much better then the 96 minute FULL version which is also on the archive here

Subject: Urgent Help requested
Writing to you with request for help in our Rooftop Cinema project.
We plan to screen this cult flick under Z-Movies Retrospective in July 2010 in the summer outdoor cinema in Tallinn, Estonia.
As we have w20m x h13m outdoor cinema screen and 15000 ANSI digital Christies projector we would need maximum quality from the screened film´s digital file. The current files most likely remain little lo-fi for our resolution capacity.
We would like to request from the uploader of this movie to Internet Archive if it would be possible to provide us with UNCOMPRESSED AVI or QUICKTIME FILE as high quality video as possible?
If you would be able to share the file, please contact me directly: aivar [at] katusekino.ee or skype aivarlaan
Looking for any feedback as soon as possible,
Thank you very much in advance,
Program Director | Partner

Subject: Huh ?
Subject: this is great !!!!
Subject: Ferrara showed his stuff
This one got past me back then; and once my ex-wife walked out after ten minutes at a double feature revival, after having seen "Texas Chain Saw Massacre" for the third time.
I went with her. ( Maybe it's a good thing we didn't see the ending together, considering where our relationship was at the time. )
Well, this is no "Texas Chain Saw ..."; but it has something; and that intangible something comes from the director.
One has to say that Mr. Ferrara really knows how to get at the baser side of humanity.
Some of the acting is excellent! Most is not, but somehow appropriately so.
I especially liked the portrayal of one of the derelicts by Peter Yellin! ( at the bus stop )
The enjoyment curve begins low, slowly rises throughout, and peaks beautifully at the final cut to black!
At that moment I said "This movie is a classic of its kind."
And so it is.
Subject: Copyright Status?
Subject: HOLY CRAP! BATMAN,HES GOT A DRILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Subject: 96 Min. Version Unlikely to be PD,
Subject: Good bad. Or bad good. Whatever.
I know it is not a valid criticism to criticize it for being no budget trash, but the fact is, it is trash and I didn't enjoy this trash.
I will continue to watch the rest, but I highly doubt it will be worth wasting my time on it.
Subject: kill kill kill
Subject: Ferrara ROCKS!
Subject: Just does't work...
it's so bad it's good!
